this has turned out more difficult than I originally thought it would be--trying to keep stitches straight and even and not crossing over--here are a few of the squares individually and then on a piece of denim. I am contemplating a large wall hanging--not my usual size.
I sent in 3 ideas for future publication and they were all accepted!! woo-woo!! so now am writing the articles and getting photos of the 3 garments ready. Look for me in the November issue of Altered Couture.

learning to do Shashiko, which is Japanese embroidery stitching. It is proving to be more difficult than it looked-but am loving the challenge. Here are a few photos of the process. The bottom photo of the vertical stitches made the base with which to add the horizontal stitches to make the top design.
